A 4K Gaming Monitor?
Gaming on a 4K monitor might've been an unrealistic dream due to the lack of powerful hardware in the past. However, with even consoles getting 4K support, we have reached a point where this resolution is finally being seen as a real possibility for gaming. Moreover, the rise of display technologies like HDR have enhanced the gaming experience on high resolution monitors even further.
Yes, there are admittedly still some trade-offs when opting for a 4K monitor, like being able to enjoy buttery-smooth 144Hz refresh rates. Although you might miss out on high refresh rate monitors at 4K, it's hard to scoff at the astounding gains in resolution, quality, detail, and colors you stand to enjoy. Whether you’re gaming, working, consuming media, or even just browsing, your experience is bound to be substantially better with a 4K gaming monitor.
It doesn't end there. Since a monitor is an essential peripheral that's not upgraded as often as other PC components or even consoles, stretching your budget to grab the best one is sure to give you a better gaming experience over a much longer period of time. Skimping on the monitor is a popular move, but it doesn’t make much sense. Your monitor is something that you’ll be looking at for most of your intense gaming sessions. Go for the best ones to get the most out of your games.

Night Vision: More Realistic, Deeper Blacks to see the Long Night
Any dark or night scene, whether in a game or a movie, is sure to send most people scrambling for their monitor’s display settings. Even after much tinkering, you might end up either unable to see the scene being rendered on your screen or a scene that you do see, but one that looks like all.
The MAG321CURV Gaming Monitor features an upgraded black-tuner, making MSI Night Vision a possibility. This allows your blacks to remain truly black, without letting them fade into the darkness or be lit up like it’s the 4th of July. Hence, the tuner ensures that only relatively brighter areas of an image are exposed, which results in a more realistic experience.
Now, you can quietly follow your characters in a dark dungeon without missing out on a cinematic experience that doesn't affect either visibility or your gaming experience. We hope you’re not afraid of the dark though!
